. is this a sign that talks are being accelerating or hitting stumbling blocks? joining me now senator kent conrad. sir, great to have you here. we showed the headline at the top of the show, from politico, the fiscal framework emerging. are the contours of the deal really taking shape? you heard kristen welker saying the description of that phone conversation may not have been so curt as originally quoted. >> truth is, i don't know. because i've not been involved in those direct discussions. what i did know is in talking to colleagues, democrats and republicans, there is a growing sense that this has to be done, needs to be done in the national interests and that it will get done. so i'm encouraged by what i'm hearing in terms of the tone of comments from my colleagueses. >> so you talk about the tone of colleagues from the left, but also on the right, tom cole took heat from john boehner and others in the gop for urging his party to go along with the president's tax plan. take a listen. >> i told tom earlier in our conference meeting that i disagreed with him. >> i think this is a minority posit

intelligence committee microphone. this is senator conrad from north dakota, the democrat on the committee. let's listen to what he has to say. >> what is very clear is that ambassador rice used the talking points that intelligence committee had all signed off on. that is very, very clear. she used the unclassified talking points that were signed off on by the entire intelligence community, so criticisms of her are completely unwarranted. that is very clear. >> are you able to say whether the cia thought it was a terrorist act within the first 24 hours and did it include al qaeda? >> i don't think i should respond to that question because of the questions of classification. again, what is very clear is ambassador rice used the unclassified talking points, the unclassified talking points that the entire intelligence community had signed off on. so she did completely the appropriate thing. now, there are other things that are classified. that's a totally different subject. i can't talk about that. >> general petraeus contradicted anything that you heard yesterday? >> look, general petraeus as dir
